Musician Daniel Baronboim signs Universal deal with Deutche Grammophon and Decca Labels and BaronBoim the Israel Conductor and Pianist at 67 is famous for his work with Arab and Israel Youth Orchestras which unite Arabs and Israelis. The Argentine born musician is also celebrating 60 years since making his debut in performance. Daniel Baronhoim is Musical Director of the Berlin Staatssoper and La Scala also. I have heard Daniel Baronhoim interviewed over the years on the BBC ... interesting news.
Another piece of news is the conversion of Former PM Tony Blair's sister in law to Islam ..the woman in question is in her 40s and because of recent experience in Muslim countries Former Prime Minister Tony Blair's sister in law is now converted to Islam as a Muslim. Cat Stevens the 60s Rock Icon convered to Islam and became a Muslim and retreated from his singing career but came back to it recently as a Sixty something in age ...so it was reported on the BBC but he also changed his name to Joseph Islam but doesnt spell it in UK English rather something a little bit French such as YOO say eff with a low key pronunciation of the J as in J a sort of soft J rather than a hard one and an equivalent pronunciation in English would be YOU Tube the Y as in You Tube would sound similar to the Y as in Joseph .. Islam seems to be the same simply Islam! Thanks .. Yahoo. However, the blogger makes the point that the Former Prime Minister Tony Blair also converted to Roman Catholicism recently and was admitted by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVl in the Vatican who since then has visited the UK and met with Our New Coalition PM David Cameron plus the rest of the Prime Ministers and also met with Her Majesty The Queen ... thanks again Reuters and Yahoo News ... Hard news travels fast across the nation!
